Please join me for a 30-day challenge to tone, lift, and get that much closer to an enviable backside!
While doing a little weight loss research, I ran into an article that said hip thrusts and glute bridges are much more effective at quickly building your glutes and helping you "activate" your glutes when you're doing other more popular "butt" exercises like squats and lunges. If you are doing squats and only feeling them in your thighs (like me), this challenge is for you!
This article also claimed that glutes are the primary muscle used in these two exercises (you can feel it, trust me!), while squats are primarily thigh.
So let's put it to the test! Here, based off of the famous squat challenges, is the challenge poster:
Rules? There are no rules! Just join in, and share your progress and struggles! We can help keep eachother accountable and make it to the end of this challenge!
A few pointers:
- I highly recommend you do a before and after picture so you can see your results!
- If glute bridges are too easy for you, you can use weights or a resistance band to make it more difficult. If you have access to a gym or equipment and want to swap glute bridges out for hip thrusts, do so! I will be doing these at home and I have no strength to begin with, therefore I will be sticking to level 1 glute bridges!
